Client-centered therapy is defined as a system of psychotherapy based on the assumption that the patient has the internal resources to improve and is in the best position to resolve his or her own personality dysfunction. As known as Personal client therapy (PCT) the therapist is not there to exert their authority, but to allow the client to openly express themselves in order to come to a resolve.

However, services like social emotion curriculum and social skills groups are often only utilized for children within the special education realm instead of being a daily practice within every educational environment. Incorporating coping and emotional regulation strategies within the general classroom would not only allow all children to have access to beneficial services, but, also, help to destigmatize, words like anxiety and depression.
